The Jackson Day race, put on by
New Orleans Track Club, was my first race of the
season. At only 9K it was a more than
manageable race and I expected to get a somewhat
decent time. The race started at the far end
of City Park and ran to the French Quarter in
downtown New Orleans. The course was
fairly flat with the exception of one overpass that
went over the interstate just before mile 2.
I started out really strong with a good 8 minute per
mile pace but the overpass slowed me a bit and I
cranked my pace back to around 8.5 - 9 minute miles.
I ended up finishing in the middle of the pack at
just over 52 minutes.
Overall it was an enjoyable run
and I will definately be making it one of my
Chad at the finish line
Best of luck on YOUR life journey!
May you reach all your goals and achieve all your dreams!
